All the best Nick

Right Nick,I am back and have settled down now.
I knew this was not the biggest dome,as I know the biggest one very well.
It is actually down at Leith docks,at a place called Mostahavapee !!

Yes they do still have the bomb in a side room (well a replica anyway)
For those who have not been there a bomb went through the dome in WW2 but failed to explode. There were a lot of people in the church at the time but no one was hurt.
I will add a shot of the bomb.

Wonderful detail.
Very lovely to see, though it slightly
woozles my eyes, or have I had too much lager
with the footie (how ladylike!)
Interesting about the bomb.
Thank goodness it failed to explode.
